I am asking if anyone has taken their cartopper to Tassie and if so, was it worthwhile? Did you get to use it much to go fishing and did you actually catch any fish? I am more interested in the close inshore saltwater areas but I am also interested to hear about the lakes as well. I realize weather would be a limiting factor but hopefully over the summer when I am going there may be some decent days.

If you fish the lakes in the high country you will find your tinny very handy but remember those lakes can come up very rough . You will need a fresh water licence to fish in all lakes and rivers over here . You will also find the tinny handy on the East Coast but would think carefully about using it on the West Coast as there is some very rough water over there .No license required to fish for scale fish in Salt Water in Tassie either.Although not exactly what you asked but there are a lot of good trout waters over here and flat head ect on the East Coast hope that this helps

Took a kayak, not a tinny, and didn't go fishing either. But it was well worth it - you see things differently from the water. Used it around the harbour in Hobart, the Derwent at New Norfolk, Boat Harbour (North coast) Strahan, various lakes and rivers, Bay of Fires. Will certainly take it next time too.

Definitely worth it. Some of the best flathead fishing I've ever experienced was around Dover and Bruny island. Great bream fishing up around policeman point as well.

Make sure you notify when booking the ferry as they need to know height of setup. limited spaces available for rigs over 2.1 metres due to trucks and motor homes.No extra cost just less spaces. Some good spots , Bridport, Mussleroe Bay*, Policemans Point*(Ansons), Binnalong, St Helens, Coles Bay. The list goes on. Highland Lakes, stick with the small ones to avoid rough conditions.
*= free camp available.
You will regret if you don't bring it.
